Growing Downward by Nick Thompson

Today I received Nick Thompson’s “Growing Downward: The Path to Christ-Exalting Humility” (Reformation Heritage Books, 210 pages) which I had the privilege of reading before publication.

In my opinion, this is one of the top ten “best books” of the some 1000 titles we have published over the last 28 years—and I don’t say this lightly. This very well-written and thoughtful book is a “must read” due to its gripping teaching that the path of humility, though difficult, is the way to true meaning and fulfillment in Jesus Christ.

Shepherds Conference

This morning I spoke at John MacArthur’s Shepherds Conference in Los Angeles on “The Puritans: Who They Are and Why They Matter” and then did an interview on “Puritan Preaching.” Pray for God’s continued blessing on this wonderful conference of 4,000 ministers from dozens of countries.

Vos’s Natural Theology

We are honored at Reformation Heritage Books, working in conjunction with the Dutch Reformed Translation Society, to bring into print Gerhardus Vos’s “Natural Theology,” which includes an excellent 54-page introduction by J. V. Fesko and a helpful foreword by Richard Muller. Albert Gootjes translated it well from the Dutch language. This book is the fruit of the recent discovery of Vos’s lectures on natural theology in the Heritage Hall archives at Calvin Seminary. This book serves well as a partial introduction to the author’s recently published Reformed systematic theology—and is a must read for those interested in reading Vos on religion and proofs for the existence of God.

Well Ordered, Living Well by Guy Prentiss Waters

Another new, valuable title just arrived from Reformation Heritage Books: “Well Ordered, Living Well: A Field Guide to Presbyterian Church Government” by Guy Prentiss Waters (100 pages). Henry Reeder writes, “This biblical, faithful, and accessible volume written for all Christians is more than useful and commendable—it is vital.”

A New Introduction to the Puritans: Following God Fully

I am happy to announce that “Following God Fully: An Introduction to the Puritans,” coauthored by Michael Reeves and me (Reformation Heritage Books, 160 pages, hardback) has just arrived! Sinclair Ferguson says that it is “simultaneously a splendid introduction, a refresher course, and a great read,” and Steve Lawson calls it a “must-read for all; you will find this book easily accessible to those new to the Puritans yet extremely insightful for those well studied in these spiritual stalwarts.” Enjoy!

New Book On Second Timothy

I am grateful to report that RHB has just released the 8th volume in the expository sermon series on the New Testament that Jon Payne and I are editing: “Second Timothy” by Michael G. Brown who pastors in Milan, Italy. These 13 sermons on Paul’s last letter are clearly written and packed full of pastoral helps. In God’s kind providence, I had the privilege of editing this book on a flight to Europe where I happened to meet the author in Milan the day after I finished editing his sermons! Highly recommended for pastors, office-bearers, and church members alike!
